Publisher's Summary

In this luminous prequel to her beloved Cobbled Court Quilts series, New York Times best-selling author Marie Bostwick takes listeners into the heart of a small Texas town and the soul of a woman who discovers her destiny there.…

Welcome to Too Much - where the women are strong-willed and the men are handsome yet shiftless. Ever since Mary Dell Templeton and her twin sister, Lydia Dale, were children, their Aunt Velvet has warned them away from local boys. But it’s well known that the females in Mary Dell’s family have two traits in common - superior sewing skills and a fatal weakness for men.

While Lydia Dale grows up petite and pretty, Mary Dell just keeps growing. Tall, smart, and sassy, she is determined to one day turn her love of sewing into a business. Meanwhile, she’ll settle for raising babies with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always wanted - a child as different as he is wonderful. And as Mary Dell is forced to reconsider what truly matters in her family and her marriage, she begins to piece together a life that, like the colorful quilts she creates, will prove vibrant, rich, and absolutely unforgettable.…

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    "Great book in a great series!"

    I wasn't sure I wanted to read this book because it meant leaving New Bern and going to Texas, but I am glad I did. It was a very enjoyable story and it was heartwarming to learn Mary Del's story. It "sewed" up the story of her and Howard and how they came to be alone in the quilting business.

    "Best of the Series"

    I loved getting to know Mary Dell better and finding out about her roots and how she got started with quilting. Natalie Ross was such a great narrator, sometimes I thought there was really a man doing some of those voices. I didn't want the book to end and I really hope we can have more books about MD and her sweet, sweet Howard.

    "A fun and heartwarming read."

    I really enjoy Marie Bostwick's books. Totally "feel good" but also encouraging about life's ups and downs.

    Story
    "Must Love Author"
    Would you listen to Between Heaven and Texas again? Why?

    No, I purchased this book due to Natalie Ross reading it. She does such a wonderful job of bring all the characters to life. If you like a story with a journey of heartache and a H.E.A.E., then this is for you.This author is not for me. Well written, but there are other authors' stories that give you a smile alone the journey and leave you uplifted e.g. Jill Shelvis or Julie James, or Rachel Gibson


    What other book might you compare Between Heaven and Texas to and why?

    Julie London's Blackberry Island. Both of these stories are about women who cope with tragedies. Yes, these stories show how women persevere through their struggles, but with all that is going on in the world, I get enough of women's struggles to succeed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when the two brothers meet the twins for the first time. That is the happy highlight of the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are plenty of moments in this book that moved me. However, they are such doom and gloom, why would I want a second helping of it? If you like to see struggle, then how women over come it and keep going, then there are plenty of those scenes for you.

    "A nice prequel to a wonderful series"

    Love all the Cobbled Court books. Mary Dell and Howard were featured in one, and it was fun to see how they came to be.

    "Really enjoy The Cobbled Court series. "

    Haven't read every book in the series yet. But, so far this is my favorite. Well written and narrated beautifully. It is entertaining from the first word. Bostwick completely wraps you into a word quilt as creatively designed and constructed as any fabric quilt
